Finally, the state of Florida has recognized same sex marriage for some time now.  Many ask, “If we break up, are the laws the same?”  The answer is yes.

Chapter 61 of the Florida Statutes governs dissolution of marriage, division of assets and liabilities, alimony, child issues and support and modifications, as well as other matters affecting the family unit, no matter the sexual orientation of the parties.

Gone are the days of discrimination against two people who love each other and share lives together, of the same sex.  The law also applies to the transgender community.  This is good news!
